The real question will be if they ignore the lower part of the wheels being cut off. But that's a bridge you should cross when you get to it. So, go back and process again, then resubmitt. If it doesn't go on, consider a Flickr account or some other way of sharing this one with more foks because it's a worthy shot.
I'll second what Joe said. I think with some careful tweaking, the subject could be made to pop a little more. There are plenty of shots on RP that are a lot closer to the fringes than this one.

With the avalanche of shots of this locomotive, the Screeners may have decided to tighten things up a bit. Never the less, work on it some more and give it another go.

My RP stuff is here.

Link to my Flickr Albums. Lots of Steam Railroad stuff there from all over the US.
